About the neighbourhood
The cottage is in a very quite terrace in the Summerhill area of Blaenau Ffestiniog and is only a few minutes walk from the town centre and all its amenities which include three small supermarkets which stay open late. There is a dog friendly pub, Y Meirion, at the bottom of the hill which also serves good food and Cell B, which does excellent food, is dog friendly as well. Superb food is also to be found at Red Chillies - the Indian restaurant. The Ffestiniog Railway is a short stroll away and Zip World is within walking distance. Cell B not only does food but also boasts a small cinema and often provides entertainment on a Saturday night. Walks from the cottage lead straight into the mountains.
Getting around
Main line station with trains to Llandudno, Betws y Coed, Bangor, Anglesey. Bus routes with connections to most of the major towns in the area.
